    Make pthread_*_destroy() more standards compliant
    Function pthread_{mutex,cond,rwlock}_destroy() returned EINVAL when the
    mutex/cond/rwlock was initialized statically via one of the
    PTHREAD_*_INITIALIZER macros and not being used before destruction. We now
    return success (0) instead, as it would have been the case when the *_init()
    function were used for initialization. This is also the behaviour Linux
    Note that we now can no longer detect multiple calls to *_destroy(). Multiple
    calls will do no harm, but return success.
    While there, fix some potential null pointer derefs in cond and rwlock.
    Fixes: #2763
